Left Wing

Shoots: Left

Ht/Wt: 5-11/180

Drafted: Phoenix, 4th round, 2004

First point:Assist vs. Boston

Scouting Report

Strengths: Porter is a great two-way player. In the
offensive zone he has great vision and should find himself among
the assist leaders.

Weaknesses: Porter can get a little too fancy with the
puck. He needs to keep it simple.

Potential: Porter has been paired early with Milan Gajic,
which should present him a ton of assist opportunities.

Coaches Corner: “Porter is solid, very dependable.
We feel comfortable with him on the ice in any situation.”
— Associate Head Coach Mel Pearson



Right Wing

Shoots: Right

Ht/Wt: 5-11/175

Drafted: Phoenix, 7th round, 2004

First point:Goal vs. Boston

Scouting Report

Strengths: Kolarik is a big-time goal scorer. Along with
his touch around the net, he has the ability to set up his fair
share of goals, too.

Weaknesses: His defense is a potential liability. He
needs to improve his play away from the puck

Potential: Kolarik should find himself near the Michigan
scoring leaders. Look for him to embarrass a few goalies.

Coaches corner: “Chad is energetic, skillful and
dynamic — the things we had hoped he’d bring to our
team.” — Pearson
